MICHIGAN DUI OFFENSE – DISMISSED
Client was charged with drunk driving after being arrested with a .15 blood alcohol level. Attorney Joseph Awad requested and received the police report and videotapes of the incident that had been recorded by the police during the arrest process. In scrutinizing the contents of the tape, it was determined that the client had performed very well on all field sobriety test that the police officer asked him to perform. It was also determined that the roadside preliminary breath test had been administered improperly. After an aggressive cross examination and presentation of the video evidence in the case, the State Prosecutor offered to dismiss the drunk driving charge in exchange for a simple careless driving ticket. The client paid a mere $150 fine and never needed to return to court.
